Tickets for the popular event, which will see teepees back under open skies on 13 September in Aynho, Northamptonshire, have already been snapped up, but if more capacity becomes available a waiting list has been set up.
This year’s event features ‘Powwow guru’ Chris Hewitt, a technical specialist from the FCA, who is giving a talk on DB transfers.
For the National Powwow more than 100 Paraplanners, speakers and experts will gather for the event in giant teepees with the conference agenda dictated by attendees.
Traditionally, some Paraplanners at the event don 'warpaint' to get into the spirit of the Powwow - a get together for shared learning.
The ‘unconference’ - preceded by a Chowwow the previous evening - is also partnering with Quietroom to run sessions dedicated to defining a Paraplanner role, seen as one of the key current issues for Paraplanners.
Caroline Stuart, host for the 2018 National Paraplanners Powwow, said: “The Powwow is a must-attend event in a Paraplanner’s calendar.
"We expect the 80 or so Paraplanners that join us will enjoy sharing, fixing and learning things under cover of the Powwow teepees.
“The day is run on unconference principles so the Paraplanners that come along really determine the content.
“The FCA are always a Paraplanner favourite so Chris Hewitt, FCA Technical Specialist will be joining us in the Guru slot.
"With the support of Ascentric, participants will be defining what it is to be a Paraplanner.
“With Paraplanning still a young profession and at times misunderstood, we’ll be working with wordsmiths Quietroom to articulate the role and make our contribution to making things clear.”
Tickets were on sale for £30 or £50, with the price difference down to the ticket purchaser and supporters of the event, who could choose to spend the extra money to further support the powwow.
